Le Nozze di Figaro
by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

 

Conducted by Harry Bicket

 

One crazy day in a wealthy Spanish household. Mozart’s comic look at human nature, pain and deception, with a constant tension between the social classes and the sexes where each character has something to gain and something to hide.

Le Nozze di Figaro is a remarkable marriage of Mozart’s music at the height of his genius and one of the best librettos ever set. This production places the action in the 1930s. Acclaimed Mozartean maestro Harry Bicket conducts.
